Beaverton, OR - Aug 3, 2009 - Audio Precision released the AG52 analog generator, a new hardware option for the APx Series of audio analyzers. Support for this new option is part of the larger APx v2.4 software release, also available.

With the new AG52 generator option, the APx can generate clean square waves with a rise time better than two microseconds. The AG52 can also generate all of the popular DIM test signals to complement a corresponding new DIM distortion measurement capability in the software, all highly desirable for power amp test and measurement.

Using special circuit techniques, the AG52 does not suffer from the ringing and rise time issues facing converter-based audio analyzers. Other benefits of the dedicated hardware include a 2dB improvement in THD+N (to -110dB typical) and an increase in maximum output level from 21.21Vrms to 26.66Vrms (balanced).

Other new features in APx500 software v2.4 include digital audio protocol analysis, acoustic response measurements, new HDMI and Dolby/DTS support, auxiliary control I/O for production test, as well as richer graphing, reporting and signal monitor options.

The AG52 is supported by the two channel models of APx: APx520, 521, 525 and 526. The new APx500 v2.4 software will ship as standard with all new instruments and is available as a free update for current customers.
